Slimming world Mexican rice bake

Back on it this week as I unfortunately had a 1lb gain at weigh in. Think this may have been because of the Chinese I had with the housemate and brownie with lots of chocolate sauce and ice cream. Opps!! 

My housemate made a Mexican chicken bake the other night and it looks and smelt amazing, so I decided to have a play around with the recipe. 

Mexican rice bake
Recipe for 2 

For the rice you will need-
Half a cup of rice
Half a tin of kidney beans 
Half a red and green pepper
Half an onion 

For the topping-
Half an onion 
Small carton of passata 
6 small tomato's halved 
1 garlic clove chopped 
1tsp of chilli powder
1tsp of paprika 
1tsp of cinnamon 
1tap cayenne pepper 
Salt and pepper seasoning 
80g cheese (2 hex) 

What you need to do-

Preheat oven to 200

Cook rice, drain and set aside 

Meanwhile fry onion, and garlic clove then add passata, spices and tomato's to the pan and let it simmer for about 15 minutes. 

In a seperate pan, fry onion and peppers.
Add rice and kidney beans.

Pour rice mixture into a oven proof dish.

Spread the sauce over the rice. 

Sprinkle cheese over the top and bake in oven until brown.

- when split into two portions it's free if you use the cheese as healthy extra. 

- can make smaller portions but I am greedy! 

hope you enjoy this recipe.
